Hawaii athlete will visit Arizona

Arizona has offered Hawaii athlete Keoni Bush-Loo. Read on for his thoughts on Arizona, visit plans, and more.

Honolulu Kamehameha Secondary athlete Keoni Bush-Loo has seen his recruitment pick up as of late and is now in the process of setting visits.

"Recruiting is going pretty good," Bush-Loo said. "I just set up some visits for January. I am going to take those visits and look at the schools that are interested and figure out which school is right."

The 6-foot-3, 238-pound athlete currently has two official visits planned and is working on scheduling a third.

"The first week of January I am going to visit Idaho and then Arizona the week right after," Bush-Loo said. "My coach is trying to work out the week after that, but I am probably going to visit Boise or California that third week."

Robert Anae is in charge of Bush-Loo's recruitment and the two have developed a solid relationship due in large part to a relationship between Keoni's father and Anae.

"Robert Anae is recruiting me at Arizona," Bush-Loo said. "He is a really good guy. He knows a lot of people that my dad knows, so they talk a lot about their families and stuff like that. It is a bonus because he knows my dad and he knows a lot of people that are very close to us."

Arizona is recruiting Bush-Loo as an athlete who will see his position decided once he arrives at Arizona, should he choose the Wildcats.

"Arizona says they see me on the defensive line, but on my film on offense they see me blocking and catching the ball a lot after motioning," he said. "On offense they see me playing in the slot, but they are probably going to bring me in at camp and see how everything goes."

As of now, Bush-Loo is keeping his options open. However, he admits that Idaho has made a positive impact on him and his family.

"I am pretty open right now," he said. "Nebraska was at the top, but then they are sinking lower because a lot of other schools are coming in.

"Idaho is kind of leading because they came for an in-home visit the night before Arizona came and they just showed my dad they are family oriented and it made my dad smile a lot, so it kind of made me happy to know that they are going to be loving and caring to me, which is a big bonus.

"Right now, Idaho looks good and they said I would get early playing time, which is a big bonus too."

Bush-Loo has not decided if he will visit Hawaii at the end of January, but knows that a decision will come close to Signing Day. In addition, he also has a good idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"I am looking for a school that will make me feel at home and a place where I can talk to people like I talk to them here," he said. "I just want to be comfortable with the people that are around me, so I can feel at home."
